A friend of mine gave me this cactus from her garden. She gave it to me as a bare cutting. She said it's easy to grow them - just stuck it into fair soil and watch it grow. Well, as you can see here, I think I killed my cactus. This cactus has been with me for more than a year now and I think it's time I say goodbye to it.
I've pulled it out from the container and found no roots. I don't know what made it die. From the weather? Too much rain and the winter cold probably killed it. She promised me she'll give me another cutting of this cactus but I have to wait 'till summer. Any ideas as to how to grow cactus? Can you help me ID this plant? I'm still learning.
